Our Life Guard Walks on Water

Jesus is undeterred by our lack of resources or faith, and with what little we can offer, Jesus can work mighty miracles. He is not bothered by storms or winds. His disciples, possibly with over self-confidence after feeding the great crowd, decide to make it on their own in their boat in the sea, but they realize in a storm that for their well-being Jesus needed to be in the boat with them.

Believing Power, Healing Power

Healing may be required when societal expectations are hoisted onto a young person as they grow up, and the result can cause injury and dysfunction when they become adults. But healing from death is routine today, and many are kept on life-support systems for hours and then revived after surgery. The Age to Come has been inaugurated by Christ’s defeat of death.

Look not down on the poor and lowly

Look not down on the poor and lowly

God doesn’t make big things happen all the time but sometimes only does very small things that become major. Sometimes if we can just cooperate with God’s will and God’s way we will see mighty miracles.

Let's Go Team

Jesus calls his followers his closest family members, but still never forsakes his mother to his dying breath. Our families may be those of our church, those who love and serve the Lord together with us. We can be a team for Christ.
